firm_detective: (kung-fu fighting)
L sits at the kitchen table, considering recent events and idly picking at a bowl of fruit salad with his fork. Every so often, he sips from a cup of tea.

It has been a quiet day.

[Translation: the war of all against all. Private to [livejournal.com profile] isalright and [livejournal.com profile] firm_detective, for the time being.]

Ryuuzaki.

*L nods at him on the way past, before heading straight for the fridge. He isn't going to say anything. He isn't going to say anything.*

I hear you've been talking to Light?

*Fuck, he said it.*

*It's rare that something in his surroundings doesn't register with him; this is no exception, but he doesn't look up from his fruit salad. Instead, he replies in a thoughtful tone,*

Light? No, he has been talking to me.

*He takes a piece of pineapple from the bowl with his fork, and eats it.*

Date: 2008-12-04 06:18 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] isalright.livejournal.com
That's not what I hear.

Date: 2008-12-04 06:21 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
No? Maybe what you heard was inaccurate.

*He sets the fork down, and takes a sip of his tea, deliberate.*

Look, what I'm getting at is if my boyfriend tells you to back off on a line of questioning, from now on I'd appreciate it if you'd actually back the fuck off, especially when he's just been through something traumatic.

Date: 2008-12-04 06:32 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
*He raises his eyebrows, thinking, That? That was several weeks ago; why is he bringing it up now, particularly given that I was right?*

If it's ever relevant, I will keep your request in mind.

*There's lightness in his bland and pleasant tone.*

Date: 2008-12-04 06:36 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] isalright.livejournal.com
Good.

*Slamming the fridge door shut and setting the soy milk on the counter with an emphatic thud.*

Date: 2008-12-04 06:39 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
-- Of course,

*he continues, in the same tone,*

-- there is the matter that I was correct to suspect outside manipulation as the causative factor.

Date: 2008-12-04 06:43 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] isalright.livejournal.com
Which you couldn't possibly figure out any way other than interrogating him all at once past the point where he asked you to stop?

Date: 2008-12-04 06:48 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
You are incorrect on three counts -- no, misinformed -- but there should not be any need for me to justify myself to you.

Date: 2008-12-04 07:11 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
Yes. To begin with, my conversation with Light was not an interrogation.

*He is still speaking in the same easy tone. It belies his irritation.*

Date: 2008-12-04 07:14 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] isalright.livejournal.com
How would you classify it, in that case?

Date: 2008-12-04 07:21 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
*He ignores the question; it has already been answered, and, as he said, he doesn't need to justify himself.*

For another thing, our conversation ended when he indicated that he was uninterested in finding out what had happened to him.

Date: 2008-12-04 07:23 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] isalright.livejournal.com
It's fucking law enforcement types like you who forget that justice is about making things better for the victim, and trample all over them on the way.

Date: 2008-12-04 07:28 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
Again, he was insistent that there had been no crime; without a crime, there is no victim.

I realize you are angry about his situation. Take up your argument with the killer -- it will be more satisfying.

Date: 2008-12-04 07:32 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] isalright.livejournal.com
I promised him I wouldn't.

Date: 2008-12-04 07:43 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
Then you are not effective.

Date: 2008-12-04 07:47 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] isalright.livejournal.com
Shut the fuck up, this is bullshit.

*Fists clenching, like he wants to punch him but isn't quite- won't, he promised Light.*

Date: 2008-12-04 07:51 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
*Noticing the fist, he settles and turns in his chair, so his legs are free of the table.*

I agree -- it is, given that I've done nothing to Light but offer my assistance.

Date: 2008-12-04 07:52 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] isalright.livejournal.com
And then been a dick about it to the point where he didn't want to give you updates on the circumstances because he knew you'd bulldoze over hime.

Date: 2008-12-04 08:01 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
*His response is arch, terse.*

He did, and I haven't.

Date: 2008-12-04 08:08 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
I am surprised at you, though.

Date: 2008-12-04 08:10 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] isalright.livejournal.com
You shouldn't be. I haven't said anything particularly surprising.
